It must be a time-consuming pain in the ass to start a business in Thailand when you live in the U.S.

I wrote BEL, and this is what I got in response to my query of when's it coming out and why the delay.

"The reasons are various and sundry, but at this point, we are prepared to
launch pending the finalization of some business arrangements."

So basically this no real answer, just like you've heard the last two years.

Teezy,
Peevy's right, from you it's not the same.
It's more like a compliment.

Maybe they forgot to tell us they wish to age it for 100 years before selling it. That way it would be perfectly accurate to the original ;-)

Damn it, Trainer, you just can't say it like he said it. Please don't try. I'll start crying again.

Don, I'm sure, still has a place in his big, black heart for the Liver.
God how I miss his retort of-"Fuck you LL."
Made me feel wanted.

I like Ted and Don, but I just don't understand what they're doing with the Jade thing. There's a fine line between keeping a tight-lip for business reasons and giving your (potential) customers the finger. C'mon guys, at least lie to me. It's almost offensive to subscribe to a mailing list and then only receive one vague message in a year.

Belated New Years resolution - don't get sucked into any more Jade threads... stop, stop, stop!

Ted never really comments-period.
That's T-Bone's mysterious way.
Motherfucker knows his absinthe, though! Goddam right.

I have been to the well.

It's odd that Ted never commented on Optional Smarts claim that he'd be selling Jade.

Maybe that's there marketing plan. They should try getting them out to people instead.

If a bottle of Jade sat in the forest and nobody was around to see it, would the bottle really exist?

But, it ain't so. Hasn't been. Guess it's not how they operate.

Yes, you'd think.
It would be a nice courtesy.

You would think there would at least be an explanation as to why it's been delayed for two years.

Like I said damn near a year (or more) ago...

I fully expect to see Christ return before Jade launches... And I'm an agnostic.
